Cosmetic Tattoo Removal

Cosmetic Tattoo Removal

The demand for semi-permanent cosmetic tattooed makeup has increased significantly over the last ten years. Unfortunately, when a cosmetic tattoo eyebrow is applied incorrectly it can be devastating for the individual. The eyebrows may be the wrong color, style, or shape, and they make your facial expression look angry or unnatural. If this is you, laser tattoo removal may be the best and safest solution.

 We cannot treat a tattoo until it is completely healed. This may take 6-8 weeks after it has been applied.

Your skin, safety and comfort are our number one priorities. […]
